The Crappy Crafters convened with crates of beading supplies this week to make earrings. If you want to make earrings, start saving up all your broken beaded bracelets and ask your friends to bring beads, wire, earring wires and some needle-nose pliers and little wire cutters. As a group, we aim to not buy supplies, but to shop our closets. This usually works pretty well. Lucie brought and possibly bought some inexpensive bracelets which you can see in the square beaded earrings in the picture. Susie made the inspired twisty wire earrings. Everyone had a go at twisting wire around an oval glass bead and stuffing the wire ends back inside the bead which you can see on the bottom left. If you make one of those, make sure you don’t skimp on the length of wire. More is better and trimming is easier than adding to the length, I realized after having a bit of a craft fail with that earring style (my fail not shown.)
So that’s it for this month’s Crappy Craft. Happy Crafting to all and Happy Spring!
